38 weeks and a diaper box

I'll warn you that I don't look like myself anymore.  I puffed up big time and I'm just over it.  It is what it is and the same thing happened in my last pregnancy.  The good news is that I only have a week left (versus 3 weeks like last time) AND, most importantly, we're both healthy.  Soooooo, I hate the way I look but it is temporary and I'll be back to my old self soon with a beautiful baby in my arms!  

(versus 2 weeks ago!)

Plus, when will I learn to take this picture at the BEGINNING of the day, instead of at the end of the day when I'm a complete mess?

Baby's size: 19 1/2 inches and 6.8 lbs, like a leek; the doctor said she's probably going to be in the low 8's...we'll see!!!

Cravings:  sweets! and water 

How I'm feeling:  puffy; I'm also having some low pain and LOTS of Braxton hicks contractions

Sleep:  turning over is painful, and I'm starting to have a little bit of insomnia from being so excited-ha!!!

My favorite part of this week:   my grandmother sent me a care package with some goodies and a blanket that she made for Kate

Planning:  just some cleaning; everything is ready.  Brian needs to get the video camera ready and install the car seat 

In case I go early and this is my last weekly post (yeah, right!), I just want to say how blessed I am and that never for a second do I take this for granted.  It is a wonderful miracle.  I also am so excited because I know what we're in for and how much I'm going to love Kate.  

Brian and I had some "me" time for ourselves this weekend.  I went to get my hair done and he played golf.  Look at his little sunburnt face!  

Harper played with a diaper box

and had a blast!
